Tarantula Burger Served In North Carolina Restaurant

In celebration of Exotic Meat Month, Bull City Burger and Brewery is serving a tarantula burger. But not everyone can have one.

In order to be able to eat this “nope” tarantula, you will need to win the Tarantula Challenge. Almost like eating a tarantulas is not challenging enough. But I guess, there are not that many of those critters around to serve an entire restaurant of people. Wearing real bugs on your fingernails is walk in the park in comparison.

Bull City Burger uses pasture-raised beef with their tarantula, topped with Gruyere cheese, an oven-roasted tarantula and spicy chili sauce.




If you are undecided if you should take a bite… According to Bull City the tarantula tastes like, “People say it tastes most like crab, or other shellfish, sometimes with a bit of a metallic-y taste. BUT, the legs, the body…each bite tastes a bit different. Best way to answer that question? Try one for yourself!” Yay, yummi… not!

So, if you want to taste the tarantula you need to sign up for the limited challenge in the restaurant. This can be done on their website. Then, you will need to watch Facebook, Twitter and the Bull City Burger and Brewery website to see if your ticket is drawn. If you manage to eat the entire burger, they’ll give you a free t-shirt. I think I’ll skip.

Should you survive the tarantula, they also serve chocolate-covered bugs. Hmmm, Yum! And if tarantula is not your thing, according to Bull City Burger, they have camel, too. I guess camels are exotic?
